Women In U.S. Congress Introduce Bill To Permanently Repeal Mexico City Policy

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Women in U.S. Congress move to repeal abortion gag rule
“Women in the U.S. Congress took formal steps on Thursday to lift a gag rule imposed by President Donald Trump…, introducing legislation that would permanently shut down the controversial policy. … The proposed law would permanently repeal the rule, which has been used by U.S. presidents for decades to signal their stance on abortion rights, a touchstone issue in U.S. politics. … Under Trump, the gag rule was expanded beyond family planning to funding for all global health assistance, including programs for HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, and immunizations…” (Wulfhorst, 2/7).
